Rapper Capo and a baby were killed in a Chicago drive by as the fleeing shooters drove over a stroller during the murder. Capo, a member of Chief Keef’s Glo Gang, was shot in the hip and back by the alleged gang members in broad daylight, according to Gawker.
Rapper Capo, whose real name was Marvin Carr, was a documented gang member, according to a police source. The baby, Dillan Harris, was with his mother and two older sisters when the killer’s vehicle barreled onto the sidewalk, slamming into the child.
“I was trying to save my baby,” the boy’s mom said. “I never imagined this would happen… my son gone so soon.” The boy was rushed to University of Chicago Medicine Comer Children’s Hospital where he died.Rapper Baby Killed - Police investigate Chicago murder
Rapper Capo and the baby were killed in front of witnesses who are still horrified by the incident. Police haven’t named the victims, but Capo’s manager, Renaldo Hess, said the young star had died in the shooting.
“He was a good kid,” Hess told the newspaper. “The streets of Chicago is something. He was murdered. I don’t understand what is going on with all these kids.”
Two people are being questioned in the gang-related shooting, which took the lifes of the rapper. A witness claimed the people in the car continued across a parking lot before bolting from the vehicle on foot after hitting the baby.
“The boys jumped out of the car right here in the alley and ran down the street,” witness Erin Fletcher said.
Rapper Capo fans also mourned his death on social media. Most of them are hip hop stars, while others knew the artist on the streets and said there’s no excuse for killing a baby.
“RIP youngbull,” hip hop star Meek Mill wrote on Twitter. Chief Keef posted late Saturday as news of the shooting spread, “I Love u….. bigggglo I love u!!!!!!,” he wrote.
The following day, he announced he had started the Stop the Violence Now Foundation and pledged to appear from Los Angeles in a free hologram concert in Chicago on Friday, according to the Tribune. Chief Keef will encourage attendees to contribute money for young Dillan’s family, a spokesman for the rapper told the publication.
Chief Keef is “just so heartbroken and appalled” by the killing that he wanted to help in some way, the spokesman said. But, the spokesman noted, the rapper can’t perform in person because of “outstanding warrants his legal team is addressing.”
Rapper Capo and the baby killed is just one story of the violence that occurs in Chicago. It’s sad to think that careless gunmen can mow down a one-year-old boy in a stroller as they flee the scene.
